Did you go the QB fuselage route on the Lancair build?

No, I did it the hard way. BTW, that photo you posted was a Glasair, not a Lancair.

Default Another outing

As I was closing the canopy to do some boring touch and goes at AVL, my RV buddy walked up and asked if I wanted to to the Western Part of NC. Heyal yeah! So we both launched off and flew down the Blue Ridge Parkway at 8,500'. Our first stop was Macon County [1A5]. I had never been there before.



After BSing with the FBO staff for a while, we saddled up and flew further West to Andrews-Murphy, AKA Western Carolina Regional [KRHP]. I had never been there either.



All in all it was a fun day, I got to fly someplace new and we encountered only light turbulence over the mountains. It sure beats pattern work!

We wish you had been there to come along! It was a rare, smooth day over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Here's what it looked like from my tail-cam. I had been planning to land on the numbers at 1A5 but landed longer so as not to take out the guy mowing the grass:

Default Rutherfordton

Owen and I met at Rutherfordton Co. [KFQD] for lunch at 57 Alpha Cafe. It's a quaint little place with about ten chairs inside, and some rocking chairs and picnic tables outside. Closed Mondays. (There was another beautiful blue RV-6 there, but the couple left before I could snap a photo.)

Default GMU for Father's Day

Three of us flew from the Asheville area to Greenville Downtown [GMU] for lunch today. Darwin took off right behind me from AVL and we demonstrated that his RV-4 is faster on climbout than a Lancair with it's gear down. Yup, like a dumb azz I forgot to raise my gear for a few minutes (how embarrassing for me). ATC actually had to de-conflict us so the RV-4 didn't chew my tail off! Traffic Alert!.

Lunch was great as always at the Runway Cafe and they gave us all a 20% discount for flying in. (I don't know if that discount is permanent or just for Father's Day.)
On the way back, I left 10 minutes before Darwin's little rocket ship.

Default short video clip

Here's a short video clip of the beautiful scenery between AVL and GMU. This was taken over TUXDO intersection. The RV-4 was about a mile off to my right.

Default RV-Lancair-Corby Starlet Day!

We had a crew of four at GMU today, including an RV-12, RV-4, Lancair 235, and a beautiful Corby Starlet. While we were eating lunch and telling stories, it came to light that all four of us had either worked in a steel mill, had a parent who did, or had taken a tour of a steel mill back in the day. What are the odds of that these days?

We filled up the ramp:
